Thank the fashion gods for the Phi Ready to Wear – Fall 2009 – 2010. I first learned about PHI during New York fashion week. I attended the show which was housed in this huge warehouse which required the use of a huge freight elevator. It was cool. I got to see a lot of my fav models like Sasha, Du Juan, Freja. I was happy to see the label didn’t let me down during a season where there are slim pickings.
Temperley Fall 2009 – 2010 collection is another label redeeming New York for me. I’m glad there are a few gems throughout the metallic mess. The jackets are really great in this collection. I saw Temperley Spring 2008 when I was in New York. I remember her afterparty was pretty kickass. Memories of fashion week.
The crazy shoe parade has started.
OMG, Rodarte is perfection. I am calling it now and Rodarte wins for best collection of NYC. Their clothing is a lesson in textiles; incorporating colour and texture. They get better year after year. The collection wasn’t all black either, that is a big bonus in my books this season.
Yohji Yamamoto’s Y-3 Ready to Wear – Fall 2009 – 2010 collection was the perfect streetwear collection for me. No one does pants like Yohji.
